Damn, that was awesome. How does a person even set their guitar up to do that? Do you have to super tighten the strings?

 

That was just crazy. It makes you wonder what music will be like years from now, with musicians being so damn inventive when it comes to looking at traditional instruments from a unique perspective…

Is that technique he’s using actually called Fingertapping? Does anyone know? I’d like to look up more videos…

 
 

He’s plucking past the nut at one point and the rest is tapping the strings at the fret.

 

His left hand is using a technique called “hammering on”.
Think of a way that a hammer in a piano hits the strings, that’s basically the same principle.
His right hand is using a combination of “Tambor” (hitting the strings in a chord sequence) and “tapping” which is sounding one string at a time.

Not hard to do but very hard to do to the standard shown here.

 

Check out the artist Justin King, he does alot of double hand work as well

i know as a guitarist this technique is pretty dang hard and to write a masterpeice like this is just simply amzing you have to just enjoy the sheer amazingness of this even on acoustic which makes it harder..er haha

 

It just makes you want to play a guitar. Very Awesome.

 

This was a pretty boring performance to watch, if you ask me. The style is great, his ability to write in this style is a bit less than stellar. Kaki King, Jason King, Maxwell Hughes (a local favorite) and many others play a similar style to this. Check them out. In my opinion, it blows this out of the water.

 

I saw this guy live once in like 2003. He is amazing on video, just imagine being 4 feet from him during warm-up/mic check. He’s a pretty good singer too, and does some funny “normal” songs… I’ve been trying to remember his name for years! I always tho0ught it was mike chapman because he played his guitar like it’s a chapman stick. well now I know and I’ve found him on myspace. this isn’t even one of his best songs!

 

This reminds me of the movie august rush that one is awesome were they have the kid banging the guitar for the notes and the music is AWESome should watch tha movie
